> Match The Player With His Average Per Year Salary For The Upcoming Season


Hold the phones. You said what are the following player's salaries in 2005. The numbers you gave out are the AVERAGE annual salary thoroughout the duration of their contracts, not their 2005 salary.

What I mean is this;
Say I sign a 4 year, $40 million deal. I won't get paid $10 million per. I'll more than likely get paid as follows...
Year 1: $7 Mill
Year 2: $9 Mill
Year 3: $11 Mill
Year 4: $13 Mill

I think we have a problem here...

soxwon

yes you are correct, i rephrased it wrong.

it should have been the average of the contracts just signed.
it gives you an idea of what they are making.

MUsoxfan

When people mention signings they say "so-and-so just signed a 4 year $40m deal." They don't mention, and I don't care to look to see how much is deferred, etc. Soxwon did it the right way, I think
